Ubuntu Linux version 10.10 Desktop and Netbook Editions will be available to download on Sunday 10 October.
The next version of the popular Linux distribution supports home and mobile computing users with online and offline applications and access to cloud services.
The Ubuntu Desktop Edition provides a personal cloud service, according to Canonical, which distributes the operating system in the UK. It provides interoperability with other operating systems, including Google's Android, Apple's iPhone and Microsoft Windows, Ubuntu said.
The Ubuntu Netbook Edition offers a user interface which Ubuntu claims has been tuned for smaller screens and computing on the move.
"Ubuntu 10.10 for desktops and netbooks is our most consumer-friendly release yet," said Jane Silber, CEO of Canonical. "Ubuntu One's personal cloud services will put Ubuntu at the heart of many users' computing worlds even when they need or prefer to use other platforms."
